Sujjawal Ahmad has been named among the recipients of the Global Health Award for an international Life Sciences conference that took place in April 2021 by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology.
Keystone Symposia serves as a catalyst for accelerating life science discovery and connecting scientists within and across disciplines at symposia worldwide.
This Keystone Symposia conference brought together basic and translational researchers to discuss and debate emerging topics and recent advances on developmental hematopoiesis, adult stem cell self-renewal, stem cell niches, novel hematopoietic regulators, and the pathogenesis of bone marrow failure syndromes and leukemia. Taken together, participants at this conference gained new insight into the biology of normal and malignant hematopoiesis and cutting-edge technologies, as well as had opportunities to cultivate new ideas and establish collaborations with researchers from disparate disciplines.
About Sujjawal Ahmad:
Sujjawal works at the Centre for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at Aga Khan University (AKU-CRM). He obtained his MS degree in Biology/Biochemistry from Quaid-i-Azam University, Pakistan, in 2017. Before he joined AKU-CRM, he served at the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at AKU and worked in the areas of clinical genomics and hematology. At AKU-CRM, his research interest involves studying drug resistance mechanisms in hematological malignancies and applications of gene-editing tools such as CRISPR/Cas9 for treating genetic disorders.
